Not just implement, but also collect the API requirements from various
apps that use file selectors, and write up the requirements along with
a discussion of filesels in other modern toolkits (Swing, Qt,
WinForms) so that we have a good idea of that's needed, what the prior
art is, and so forth. There's a good bit of API design here in
addition to the UI design and the implementation work.

It's just a largish (but by not means huge) task that needs someone to
take care of it.
